Wandering around Staten Island after a ferry ride, we found this little cafe. The service was excellent, the sandwich terrific and the staff were friendly and informative. A great place to stop in near the Ferry Terminal.

The service is fast and hot. I love the chicken salad sandwich. The burgers are good and my friend raves about the cheesesteak. Great for neighborhood businesses and those on... More

The setting is close to the courthouse, but there are blue collar and white collar patrons, as well as tourists, that find their way to this small diner. Excellent lunch and great service!!
